    Pretty much. If it's a reboot, it'd basically be Ash in name only. Not the same character we've been following from Kanto all the way through Alola.

    No one said that, he said that the show ends when Ash becomes a Pokemon Master.

    View: https://twitter.com/anipoke_PR/status/1168357906049142784 Google's translation seems pretty accurate: The anime series started in 1997 is the 23rd year this year, and has been broadcast more than 1000 times! The title of the work has changed several times so far, but the title of the...

    Master is too recent to have had any impact on the anime.

    What this will actually end up being is the most advertisement-heavy Pokemon anime series to date. It'll have even more advertisement in it than SM does. Taking place in "all regions" means they can finally drop all semblance of plot and focus exclusively on advertising whatever products they...

    Still, with how long it takes to produce anime, Masters release is too recent to have an impact.

    They didn't de-age him. He was 10 in every series. Masters JUST came out, so its reception has nothing to do with this.

    That's kind of a given. The anime all takes place in one linear timeline. Much like SM clearly takes place after XY, SwSh will take place after SM. They just did that AU crap for the movies because they're lazy and don't know what to do with the movies after M19 flopped so hard.

    It's just marketing speak. We're getting an adaptation of the new games, like always.

    That's exactly what it will be though, Ash traveling through Galar. There's no reason to believe otherwise.

    Which is what the one series will be doing. Origins was nothing but an ad for Mega Charizard X, and Generations was just a series of anniversary shorts. Safe to say they won't be doing anything like that again until the next major anniversary.

    There isn't going to be two series. Just one.

    It's known that Shigeru Ohmori (director of the Sun & Moon games) helped out a lot with the Sun & Moon anime's production and that Nintendo has had a tighter leash on the anime as of late. Ohmori is also the director of Sword & Shield, so I'm wondering if the more direct involvement from the...

    Oak's Rotom belongs to Oak, and Rotom Dex wasn't thought of at the time, which is why they made a new Rotom for Ash. This time though, there's already a Rotom that fills the exact same function. I'd also like to point out that the phone isn't the only use for Rotom. There are also Rotom...

    Rotom took over the walking encyclopedia role in Sun & Moon, so if he comes back, he can continue filling that role instead of introducing another character.

    He was denied Megas because no Gen 6 Pokemon had them until Diancie in ORAS. Any Pokemon can use Z-Moves, so there was nothing stopping Ash from getting a Z-Ring. Dynamax also isn't limited to specific Pokemon, so there's nothing stopping Ash from using it.

    I find that highly unlikely. What's the point in introducing another Rotom when there's already one wants to stay with Ash to pursue its goal of being the greatest Pokedex in the world (which it's most likely to accomplish with Ash considering all the rare Pokemon Ash encounters)?

    Did anyone expect otherwise? Rotom Dex was presented as a technological breakthrough. Not to mention all the $$$ it makes for TPC. Anyone who thought Rotom wouldn't be back next gen was kidding themselves

    It's also described as being fast despite its heavy shell due to its strong muscles. So, it'll basically be Turtwig 2.0 that doesn't lose its speed.
